Ahhhhh……….the king of fruits!!! Mango season is over, few last remaining mangoes are being sold in the market. So i bought a few to bid adieu to this royal fruit for this season. And what could be more appropriate than a mango dessert !! 🙂
Had been thinking of making ‘payasam’ and then bingo !!! why don’t I combine it with mango and there we go………Mango phirni. Easy to make and good to eat 😉
Presenting here is the Mango phirni from the Sentient food platter.
Here’s what i did……….
2 cups – full cream milk
1 tbsp – raw rice (soaked in water)
1 nos – green cardamom (roughly crushed)
1/2 cup – ripe mango pulp
5 tsp – sugar
1 tsp – finely chopped almond slivers
pinch of rose petals ( fresh or dried)
few drops of kewra essence
Heat the milk in a pan. Once it comes to boil add the crushed cardamom and lower the heat.
Make a coarse paste of the soaked rice or use a mortar and pestle to crush. Add this to the boiling milk and keep stirring often. Once the rice has blended and cooked, add the sugar. Cook for another 3-4 mins and take it off fire. Once it cools down to room temperature, refrigerate.
Before serving, take the chilled phirni out, add the kewra essence and the mango pulp. Blend it well. Garnish with almonds slivers and rose petals.
Note : Garnish can be of your choice. One may add chopped fruits and other dry fruits.
Happy navratras !!!
Happy cooking !!! 😀
Cheers !!! 😉
